Abstract

The paper measures the effects of workplace partnership and
selected high performance work practices on four different
dimensions of employee experience. Whilst the partnership–
high performance work systems nexus seems to have little
impact on employees’ job satisfaction or sense of attachment, it does, however, have a negative impact on both workplace stress and employee evaluations of union performance. The analysis thus questions common assumptions about the inevitability of ‘mutual gain’ and the necessity of employer/union partnership.
